DISCS & ZEN PAPERBACK OUT NOW!!!

Patrick McCormick’s second book in the the Zen Disc Golf series is now avdiscs-and-zen-book-coverailable in paperback format via Amazon

FROM THE AMAZON DESCRIPTION: After creating a movement in the disc golf world with his cultural classic, Zen & the Art of Disc Golf, author Patrick McCormick returns with Discs & Zen, a more in depth look at how disc golf can be seen as a microcosm of life. New and old fans alike will love McCormick’s clever use of insight and humor in hopes to make you never see disc golf the same way again. Discs & Zen is destined to sit along side Zen & the Art of Disc Golf as a treatise on self-growth and personal potential seen through the eyes of a disc golfer.

FROM PATRICK: “Maybe it is because I just finished it, but I like this book even more than the first! As a result of people getting to know me and my sense of humor on the podcast, I was able to be a little more relaxed in my writing style. I was able to inject a little more lightheartedness and fun into the book. It is just as powerful as the first, but I think you will laugh a lot more. I had an excellent time putting this book together and I hope people enjoy it as much as the first!”

 

A Kindle version is slated to be available closer to the end of December. An Audible version will be available early in 2017.

If you are a disc golfer, then BUY THIS BOOK! If you are a student of Zen practice, then BUY THIS BOOK! If you want to live a better life, then BUY THIS BOOK!

Patrick McCormick has written a short but deep look into playing disc golf, practicing a Zen mindset, and tapping into the potential to become the best possible “you.” McCormick’s words are like syrup, they hold such thick value that sometimes it takes a little while to digest them fully, but when those words do finally sink in, it is truly an enlightenment. Suddenly, everything makes sense and things that may have been cloudy before are now perfectly clear…

Although I am a relatively new disc golfer, I come from a background of playing regular golf for most of my life and struggling with the mental side of playing at a competitive level. In fact, several years ago I played regular golf competitively in college in Southern California, but became very frustrated, depressed, and ultimately burnt out from my tireless efforts to elevate my game to the next level. I WISH I would have had McCormick’s book at that stage of my life. Nevertheless, I’m very glad I have this book now. I have read it cover to cover several times, and always keep it close by if I feel the need to refresh myself before I go play, or even go take on the day.

Reading “Zen and the Art of Disc Golf” has made me appreciate the time, effort, skills, and enjoyment that comes from playing and participating in all the sports I play, and even my occupation as a middle school mathematics teacher. I now have a renewed interest in getting the absolute most enjoyment I can from my work and leisure time activities, challenging myself to constantly improve my game and myself, and even enter competitive tournaments again.

Thanks Patrick. Your book is truly awesome and profound!

DISCS & ZEN –

In Zen & The Art Of Disc Golf, I talked at great length about how your disc golf bag can be seen as a metaphor for all the baggage that you carry around with you from day to day and how if you do not place your bag on the ground (“dropping your baggage”) you severely decrease your accuracy and ability to achieve your goals.

Today, I would like to talk to you about what we place in our bags and how we hold onto discs and equipment that serve no other purpose than to “fill out our bags.” It’s very interesting to meet and talk to so many new players who begin playing disc golf and starting with the same habits. I believe a psychologist could make a reasonable study of disc golfers to extrapolate trends in human behavior. We often talk about how newer players tend to buy high speed drivers in hopes that the numbers on the disc alone will put our tee shots where we want them in the fairway with little attention paid to our throwing technique, but another habit that we have is being pack rats or maybe “bag rats” would be a better term.
